    Tim Burton finds his Alice

    Australian actress in final negotiations for 'Wonderland'

    NEW YORK -- Tim Burton and Disney have found their new Alice -- not in Wonderland or down the rabbit hole but Down Under.

    Australian actress Mia Wasikowska is in final negotiations to walk through the looking glass in Burton's take on Lewis Carroll's classic fantasy novel "Alice in Wonderland." The deal marks the end of a long search for the big-budget project's title character.

    The film, based on a script by Linda Woolverton ("The Lion King"), will be produced by longtime Burton collaborator Richard Zanuck, former Disney chairman Joe Roth and Jennifer and Suzanne Todd. It will be shot with live-action and performance-capture footage and presented in Disney Digital 3-D. Disney creative executive Jason Reed will oversee the project, set to begin principal photography in November.

    Wasikowska got her start on the Aussie series "All Saints" and is a regular on HBO's "In Treatment." She next will appear opposite Daniel Craig in Ed Zwick's war drama "Defiance" and just completed filming the role of a young Amelia Earhart fan in Mira Nair's biopic "Amelia," starring Hilary Swank.

          I remember seeing a version of Alice in Wonderland once before. It was really weird. I think it was from Norway or Sweden or someplace like that. It was also a combination of live-action with stop animation.

              Hey, I think I just watched that one a few months ago. It was weird! Where she went in through a desk drawer, right?

              I'm also a big Alice fan, so I hope Burton can do her justice.
              A signature should go here.

                  Yes! And the White Rabbit kept on clicking his teeth together and sewing himself up. Weird movie -- and a little creepy too!

                      I can't wait for this, I remember thinking that Tim Burton would be perfect to direct a live action Alice in Wonderland a few years ago.

                          ^Love her! She'd be great at that part! Although I see her more as the Dutchess for some reason.

                            I'm totally on board for this. Mia Wasikowska rocks on "In Treatment" and was totally robbed of an Emmy nomination for it. No matter how many times I've seen her episdoes, she always makes me cry. And as Alice? I can totally buy it.
                            "'dognapping.' can you imagine such a thing? 'fifteen puppies stolen.' they are darling little things. anita and her... her bashful beethoven! PIPE AND ALL! oh, roger, you are a FOOL!"
